# median

median(v[, region])

Compute the median of whole array `v`

, or optionally along the dimensions in `region`

. For even number of elements no exact median element exists, so the result is equivalent to calculating mean of two median elements. `NaN`

is returned if the data contains any `NaN`

values. For applications requiring the handling of missing data, the `DataArrays`

package is recommended.

## Examples

```
julia> xsum = rand(5)
median(xsum)
0.6850542627340954
```
